Abstract:

For a kid named Cribbsy, the month of November, 1963, was a private train wreck weeks before JFK undertook his fatal motorcade in Dallas. Cribbsy is tangled in a half-dozen romantic crises. He's hounded by malevolent dwarfs. He's under threat of suspension by a vicious vice-principal. He's at war with his English teacher. Every time he sets foot in the halls, he faces death at the hands of a delusional gridiron gladiator. Cribbsy's trials trace America's loss of innocence. Kennedy has faced down Khrushchev over Cuban missiles, but every kid grows up with the haunting certainty that his life - all life - will end beneath a mushroom cloud. As the nation mourns JFK, Cribbsy's troubles mount. He becomes an unwitting felon. He receives an unexpected overture from the yummiest girl in school. He faces a showdown with his raging nemesis. He knows what happened in the Art Room. And he has a conversation--both crushing and illuminating--with the Playmate of the Month.
